What sort of info are you after? I've met the person behind it in the U.K. a couple of times he's a really, really knowledgeable and passionate individual. I've got a couple of shirts which I'm really pleased with and if you want something that's quite different to the fashion norm and all about the quality of construction then you could do a lot worse. The fits I've seen are all quite loose. Have a look here http://repeattofade.blogspot.com/ under the June 30th entry for more info.

nice one - thanks. I have seen the Oki Ni ones and like the look. I wear Yen jeans, but as they are now defunkt, need to move on to something else. I cannot wear skinny as I got short but wide legs, so look fr%ggin stupid, so prefer loose like mi ladies


this article was in the metro on thursday

iv heard black diors are hard to fade.
iv worn them practically everyday for about 7 months and about 4-5/7 days a week for around 6.
the markings there arn't creases, the jeans were flat. theres a little bit of wallet fade but not much and the knees have started faded a little.

crotch is wrecked tho. had to patch it up.
il give it another year.

Bought some Rescues which at the mo are just too wide for my everyday trainers and drag along the floor. Was gonna get them tapered slightly but remember that my NS shrunk slightly width-wise as well as in the leg, so… long story short… if I wash the Rescues then douse with spray starch will I still get hte same fade effects as if unwashed!?

apc new standards - will hardly wear them, so should I go true size, rather than the size down?

Evers, they fit two sizes bigger before you even wear them so if you go true to size they will be too big before you even start. I had a pair of 30s which measured 15.75" across the waist when new. They stretched to over 17" in a day

I'm looking for a pair of slim/skinny raws, tighter in the thigh than 19cms, made with nice denim, got some PBJ's and would like something skinnier but also in thick denim to rotate with them. What's the fit on skulls like? Anyways, any suggestions welcome.

the bleed is pretty heavy but none more so than another pair of raw denims, and it does stop but you are looking at a number of washes before hand.

Mine stopped bleeding after roughly 2 soaks and 2 washes in the washing machine, albeit after fucking up a white settee along the way.

I guess it's either not a science or you've just been lucky/I've been lucky.

As a side note: You really wash them after every wear? How have they faded?

just look washed out to be fair mate, and i hoped they would stop fucking up my shoes and furniture, but it doesnt work. thats why i only buy distressed or unraw denim nowadays.
i wash all my clothes except jackets after a full wear.
maybe i should post in the weirdo thread.

cant wait to rock them new neighborhoods i got today, gonna team them with some fbts and my black neighborhood leather for tomorrow nights antics.
